SCHOOL FINANCES: House Lawmakers Disagree
Iowa Democrats accused House Republicans of refusing to take action on school funding, Wednesday. “If there's a bill sitting in committee and has gone nowhere, there is a rule that you can bring it up that bill in the House to be voted on,” says State Rep. Sharon Steckman, (D) Mason City. When Steckman tried to bring a Senate bill to the House floor, she says Republicans shot it down. The bill would raise basic state aid for the 2015-2016 school year to 6%.
